Bridgestone Opens New Off-The-Road Tire Plant in Thailand

Nov 2019

Bridgestone, a leading tire maker from Japan, has opened an off-the-road (OTR) tire plant in Amata City in Thailand in October 2019. The unit is operated by Bridgestone Specialty Tire Manufacturing (Thailand) Co. Ltd. and spans an area of 9.3 million square feet. The facility opened with a capacity of 35 tons per day, producing radial tires for construction and mining vehicles.

The new factory will function as the first Bridgestone unit producing OTR tires in an Asian country other than Japan. Worldwide, it is Bridgestone’s sixth OTR tire plant, including two in the US and three in Japan.

Bridgestone has three other tire plants in Thailand — a passenger/light truck tire plant in Nong Khae; a multi-product plant in Ransit; and a radial truck tire plant in Chonburi — and is building a pair of aircraft tire factories there as well.
